One of the favourite destinations among tourists in Croatia, Baska Voda, is ready for another tourist season in 2020, this time in somewhat different conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic. On July 2, 2020, I visited Baska Voda to check if the town is welcoming tourists despite the pandemic.
Baska Voda in 2020
As you can see from the photos, Baska Voda is lively in July 2020. Many visitors have arrived despite the pandemic, and they feel safe. As expected, a number of arrivals is around 30% less than last year, so it seemed like I visited the town in May. A lower number of visitors is an advantage for those who arrive this year because they will be able to enjoy a quiet vacation.
There are many people on the beaches in Baska Voda, however, there is enough space to keep a social distance. And visitors usually do so for the shake of safety.
Restaurants, bars, and other tourist facilities are fully operational in Baska Voda, expect those ones which include gatherings of a large number of people. You can enjoy sitting in a bar or restaurant while watching the sea and drinking your favourite drink.
Should you visit Baska Voda in 2020
I believe everyone who decides to visit Baska Voda, or some other place in Makarska Riviera this year will have a great time. There are no crowds in the town, and the beaches are more beautiful than ever. It's simply a perfect place to take a rest from all the pandemic crisis and anxiety that ruled Europe over the past few months.
Many private apartments and hotels keep the same accommodation prices as in previous years, yet some of them decided to lower down the price in order to attract visitors. It means it's possible to get a great deal even in July or August. Find the best accommodation deals on booking.com.
